I just finished the Tina Turner book. Highly recommend. 5 Stars. I borrowed it to read, but will totally be purchasing this book. This has the type of wisdom you wanna revisit yearly. Buy or borrow this. I definitely suggest getting your own copy so you can highlight things.
She said for the first 25 years of her life, racial discrimination was legal. Imagine what you know of Tina Turner and all that she’s accomplished, and imagine all the hurdles she’s had to jump over.
It makes me so proud, even tangentially, being a BW knowing what we’ve accomplished. We’ve had to deal with racism and sexism and issues within our own communities. Yet we still rise.
The artificial pedestals propping some up and keeping others down are falling. And it’s bc of trailblazers. I am stoked to live in a time where our options and opportunities are mostly controlled by us and our thoughts and actions.
Tina is a Buddhist, but the wisdom she gives transcends. And it comes as I’m growing deeper in my yoga 🧘🏾♀️ practice. So this really resonated with me. She has overcome so much and with so much grace. Her story is a great guideline.
